Local Area

Porthcothan Bay is another of those locations which is just waiting to be discovered and explored. Within easy reach of Padstow and St Merryn, and a short drive up the coast road from Newquay and Mawgan Porth, the sheltered, sandy bay at Porthcothan is another of the many family-friendly beaches that can be enjoyed along this part of the coastline. It is also dog-friendly all year round, and boasts picturesque cliff walks and outstanding scenery. The area around Porthcothan is also home to a wide variety of sea birds, and the cliffs are often grazed by ponies and sheep, which helps with conservation of local plant life. The nearby village of St Merryn and the town of Padstow offer an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants, in addition to the local pub, the Tredrea Inn, which hosts live bands and also has a beer garden where you can sip your drink while admiring the superb views over the bay. Porthcothan Bay is also close to the village of St Eval, where anyone, whatever your age, can have loads of fun on the Karting Circuit, and when you're done, you can visit nearby Kernow Chocolate where you will find a wide range of yummy chocolate treats!


Went well.Mr Roger Bartlett - 7th October 2018
All good, great trip thank you!Mr Mark Renals - 26th August 2018
We had a lovely stay and the farmhouse and its position were spectacular - especially in the sunshine!Mrs Candy Evans - 15th July 2018
The house is old and wonderful. Very well equipped and perfectly clean. Amazing views and peaceful. It has a very grand feel. It has a lovely enclosed garden which you can park in on the concrete area. Perfect location for beaches, walks and somewhere to eat out. Mrs Lyn Thompson - 2nd July 2018
Loved our stay. Beautiful house. Comfortable beds. Everything worked. So peaceful. Enclosed garden was great for our dog. The house is well located and we enjoyed many walks both from the property and a short drive away. The Constantine surf shop nearby was super helpful when it came to hiring wet suits and boards which provided hours of fun. Louise and family were helpful and kind and even though they lived next door, we didn't see them unless we asked them something. Great holiday, we'll be back.Mrs Lindy Laubscher - 23rd April 2018
The property was in a great position with lovely views of the surrounding countryside and with good access to the coastpath. We really enjoyed the walk to Bedruthan Steps to the café for lunch.miss Kaye Evans - 20th March 2018
